  • Her Shot: High Heel Brewing

    Her Shot / May 26, 2016 / No Comments.

    Many have tried and most have failed to design a craft beer specifically for women. Kristi McGuire is using her 20 years of industry experience to come at the target in a new and calculated way.
    High Heel Brewing from Lakeland, Florida will be turning out two brand new brews this June. The ingredients and tastes are meant to appeal to women who are either already in on the craft beer scene or still looking for a way into the game.
    Too Hop’d to Handle is an American IPA that rings in at a high 8.4 ABV. It’s super hoppy and perfect if you’re just trying to take things slow. The second brew is called Slingback. It’s a hybrid of ale and pear cider with passionfruit juice, chamomile and elderflower inside. This one is easier to throw back at 5.4 ABV.
    It’s no coincidence that the first two offerings are so different. HHB is trying to mirror the diversity of the craft beer landscape to show a newcomer that just because hoppy beers may not be for them, doesn’t mean they can’t find something else they enjoy.
    The jury is still out on whether or not this is a winning idea. Some women are excited to try the new brews while others aren’t warming up to the suggestion that they need their own drinks. The only thing we know for sure is that after a few bottles of Too Hop’d to Handle, we’ll all be feeling pretty good.

    The legal limit for an alcoholic drink is .6 oz. To give you some perspective, a typical shot is about 1.5 oz. That means your heavy poured Jack and Coke is well over the limit. But there are some drinks out there that would make your usual Friday night look like a visit to Grandma’s house.

    1. #BestPartOfThe90s: For some reason this hashtag is the top trending topic on Twitter today. So you should probably just sit back, take a sip, and reminisce about how terrible the fashion was from 1990-1999.

    On a hot, blazing day, what could save the moment more than a chilled, refreshing popsicle? Another way to get your mind off of the heat could also be concocting a revitalizing, fruity cocktail.

We’ve covered these little beauties in the past, but seeing as the temperatures continue to rise, we figure the time is right to share our top three favorite recipes for reviving any sunny, spring day.

    Now that we can officially claim it’s springtime, we’re betting that your allergies are acting up just as much as ours are. Stuffy nose, itchy eyes, scratchy throat – no one has time to care for spring’s crappy allergens when the weather is so beautiful outside. Sure, you could pop a Claritin and use eye drops until your heart’s content, but to us, the true cure is a cup of – that’s right – booze. And seeing as the blooming flowers and plethora of pollen would be nothing without bees, what other drink would be more appropriate than a honey-flavored one?
